WITH YESICA SÁNCHEZ, advocate and human rights defender from Oaxaca
Yesica Sánchez is a human rights lawyer who works with the NGO Consorcio against the impunity of the ever increasing incidents of violence against women and femicide in Oaxaca, Mexico. Impunity has been committed at all levels of government: by prosecutors, legislators and judicial officials. During the event Ms Sánchez will explain the factors that allow for the increase in violence against women that has been recorded over the last years. She will also talk about strategies that a civil society can develop to counteract this phenomenon.
